Think of Vietnamese food, think of Beef Phở! And where can you have the best and the most authentic now that travel restrictions are still in place? You don’t have to look too far…check out Ăn Viet @ Gurney Plaza.
An Viet, a popular Vietnamese food joint in Malaysia has recently introduced the Beefiest Pho (also has an outlet at Gurney Plaza)... an improvised version to their existing recipe, creating a beefier version of Pho broth. This is also in line with the brand's passion to constantly enhancing existing dishes to excite their regular patrons. The broth is cooked for hours to fully accentuate the deep,beefy flavors.
I actually love the overall taste and the sweetness of prawn and sugarcane. One stick.. two... three..10 sticks shouldn't be a problem for me haha..
The ingredient serve here is fresh, good quality and the soup gives you the authentic Sichuan taste. There are also some small bites food apart from the hotpot where you can just munch on it while waiting for your hotpot food to be cooked.
Definitely a great hotpot experience, especially if you’re coming in a big bunch, the more the merrier.
Food here is good and their service is really fast too but i feel that their price is a little expensive. Environment is comfortable and nice.
Here's the location.
Ippudo Pork Bun (RM 7.70), one of their signature snack and best seller across the world. Juicy braised pork belly with Ippudo's special sauce sandwiched between the soft mantau is addictive
Overall, The Barn is an awesome place, with good food, friendly services and comfortable environment.
Christmas is best celebrated by enjoying the classic dish - Turkey. If you feel having the whole bird for your family is too much, why not enjoy the A La Carte Roast Turkey (RM 42) at The Barn? The platter will be featuring carved turkey with chestnut, then served along with terrine, roasted chat potatoes, mixed vegetables and complimented by honey grain mustard & cranberry sauce.
Customers enjoy free flow of soup and salad from the buffet counter.
All the BBQ offerings come with different condiment that will tickle ones taste buds giving the BBQ food more flavors.
All the dessert here are properly decorated and well presented at G Hotel buffet, with this the dessert is able to give you the sweet good taste and pleasing to the eyes too.
Have a bowl of flavourful Italian-American seafood cioppino – a mixture of a variety of fresh seafoods like squids and mussels cooked in a tomato-based stew with crackers which the kids will also love

Additionally, the bar presents a Craft Beer promotion featuring Dead Pony Club, Punk IPA, Old Engine Oil, and Lost Lager, with prices starting from RM38 nett. These exceptional offers provide value and variety, appealing to both seasoned beer connoisseurs and those interested in exploring new flavors.
Tree Bar is no stranger to the scene as it's tipped as the largest alfresco bar in Penang and a favourite spot among many to sit back unwind over drinks and bites.

The High Tea Set Menu offered by Averie House is actually a partnership between the cafe and Gen, the fine dining restaurant in Lebuh Presgrave. Bearing a premium price tag at RM 130 per set, the high tea set revolves around peculiar items that you least expect will appear in 3-tier high tea set, yet the taste was miraculously appeasing. Ditch your thought of having fruit tarts, chocolate macaron, dainty desserts or sandwiches, and expect a playful tickle to your taste buds using local flavour infused desserts such as Durian puff, Cempedak macaron, Nutmeg mouse cake and etc.
Overall, the experience at Mr Dakgalbi was not up and the taste was monotonous for indulgence. Please note that above experience only apply at Mr Dakgalbi at Gurney Plaza and not representative of the food at other Mr Dakgalbi outlets.
Dakgalbi, a type of Korean stir-fry dish with Gochujang sauce, has been well-received by Malaysians. One of the biggest players- Mr. Dakgalbi has recently opened a new branch at Gurney Plaza. With its success in central Malaysia, the spread of news on the brand expanding its business operations to Penang was quick; many ardent fans of Korean Dakgalbi were seen queuing patiently over the weekend, just to have their cravings fixed. The franchised restaurant has a small menu dedicated for Dakgalbi but their unique selling point is none other than their alluring Cheese Ring where diners get to enjoy the stir-fried Chicken with pulls of gooey, stretchy melted Cheese.
Here's the location.
I like their Sesame Oil Mee Suah and there is only one choice of drinks to choose from which is their Cincau Ice.
The signature Sesame Oil Chicken Soup Mee Suah was reasonably seasoned and the Mee Suah was silky smooth but the lack of bold Sesame Oil flavor and Ginger-aroma left us underwhelmed. We thought they could be bolder to bring out better flavors. They could be more generous with the Chicken either, or merely they were cut into small pieces and the texture was less-satisfying
Pan Fried Abalone Mushroom in Sauce which serves in big quantity with succulent abalone mushroom. We love how the chef maintained a semi-crisp abalone mushroom texture, which shows not over fried that might cause the mushrooms lose the nutrients
Most Malaysians can relate their diets with Soup as most of us growing up associating with Soup so when the proud Malaysian brand- Souper Tang (汤师傅) opened a new branch at Gurney Plaza, we were not surprised to see the long queue of curious gourmands scouting the new restaurant. Souper Tang is known to offer invigorating Chinese double boiled Soups that are believed to bring medicinal health benefits and a variety of wholesome Chinese dishes. Price points are high and the service staff lacked proper training so the waiting time can be rather long. Souper Tang is just opposite to Canton-I at 1st floor of Gurney Plaza.
For those who prefers a milder petai taste, the Petai Home Made Tofu (RM 12.90) is the perfect choice. The tofu is deep fried to possess a thin crisp skin and maintaining fluffy texture inside. It made a great combination along the petai with a slight heat component from the sambal.
So wait no more, head over to Wai Po Jia Granny's Cottage 外婆家 and be pampered with all the scrumptious cuisines and flavours they have in store for you.
Dining here is nice, the food here is good and the environment is comfortable. Service is good but the price is a little bit pricey.
To experience True Korean Dining, you have got to pop over to Han Sik Ga and allow Han Sik Ga to do their wonders in pampering your palate with their beautiful Korean cooking and flavours.
Ginseng Chicken for RM 38. It is the classic version with half portion of a free-range chicken and glutinous rice. Ginseng scent could be tasted from the soup but it lacks the depth that yields wow factor, especially the chicken did not really take in all the essence yet. Good thing is the restaurant provides rock salt for you to customize the soup saltiness level, and once salt added (especially onto the chicken), it elevates the taste to another level.
I won't hessiate to come back here for the 3rd time for its night session where other hawkers stalls opens up for dinner time.
The restaurant offers a decent range of Chinese seafood-based dishes, and even Bak Kut Teh! Bitter Gourd with Egg is another popular dish, a must try here.
One of the must order here is their Xiao Long Bao. It is available in a either 6 or 12 pieces in a bamboo steamer, with a variation of filling you can choose from. Although these xiao long bao looks tiny, it exhibits such a high degree of finesse - thin skin, delicate pork filling along with sweet broth upon puncturing the skin. Furthermore, the crew will expertly mix the condiments which comprises of soy sauce, vinegar and a few fine slices of ginger to give these xiao long bao a refreshing and balancing taste.
The design and decoration is look good.
I am definitely adding Go Noodles House to my favorite place to eat list, haha !
Here's the location.
An exceptionally popular and fairly casual noodle-specialist hailed from central Malaysia has recently expanded its business operations to Penand and has finally swung opened its doors to the public. Go Noodle House's first Penang branch is strategically located in Gurney Plaza (7th floor/ opposite to SenQ). Beelines of long queues have been spotted for the past few days. The brand has gained strong reputation in terms of quality and wallet-friendly price tags. Go Noodle House is also famed for its signature clear-soup noodles, finished with Chinese Wine. The no-frills restaurant offers a simple home-styled cooking menu that features two types of noodle dishes- Clear Soup and Pan Mee (available from Rm 9.90). We were certainly impressed with the food quality, but we thought their service level could be further improved (or perhaps, the restaurant is still new and the staff lacked of experience and training).
The hotel has launched a buffet available daily, featuring a combination of 4 types of menu - local, western, seafood and Japanese. The daily buffet is priced at RM 65 for adults and RM 45 for senior citizen & children on weekday, and RM 75 for adults and RM 50 for senior citizen & children on weekends (RM 65 and RM 45 for adults and senior citizens on Sunday dinner). Exception is on Friday and Saturday dinner where this price is not applicable.
Evergreen Laurel Hotel Penang is a 5-star hotel at Gurney Drive (Persiaran Gurney).
Café Laurel offers buffet dinner every Friday and Saturday.
Despite the fact that KyoChon is doing good with multiple store openings at Johor Bahru, KyoChon At G Hotel Penang Will Be Closing Down On 14th July After Three Years.
KyoChon, the place may look big from the outside but most of the space inside is being occupied by their kitchen and leaving KyoChon with limited space for seating place.
We ordered Bulan Mulia Special Dine-in Set 2 RM59.90
The bestselling beverage here is the Golden Gate (RM12.30).
Other than just coffee, San Francisco Coffee also serve some light food like Burrito, Pastry, Turkey and Cheese Omelette, Croissant and many more.
We loved SF coffee as they used a great blend of coffee that yields nice aroma profile. SF coffee sources beans from some of the best coffee farms around the world and aims to combine the perfect blend of coffee that allows customers to enjoy a pleasant experience at their outlet. Other than the coffee, the sandwiches served at SF coffee are freshly assembled too, allowing customers to grab some quality sandwiches either for brunch or tea break.
